NEW: IncontiLase™ Revolutionary treatment of urinary incontinence in women!
Did you know that as many as 1 in 4 of every sexually active women experience some form of urinary incontinence? This often debilitating and embarrassing occurrence is still very much a taboo in our society. However, the fact of the matter is that urinary incontinence is not just an “old woman” issue. Especially in women who have gone through vaginal child-birth, this is a much more common concern than most people are aware of. Most women who experience mild to moderate cases of urinary incontinence, believe their only option for improvement is to do kegel exercises. When these don’t improve the situation noticeably, many have therefore resigned themselves to the “fact” that this is just something they have to live with. Sadly, because of the embarrassment and stigma associated with this condition, many don’t even dare tell their family physician about this issue. Due to the lack of knowledge about treatment options, many quietly endure the humiliation and life-limiting nature of their condition. There IS help available, and it does NOT need to include pain, discomfort, or complicated surgical procedures!
The IncontiLase™ Er:YAG laser technique that we are able to offer you at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, is the latest in photothermal, non-invasive laser therapy. This treatment option, has been found to be highly effective in mild to moderate cases of urinary stress and mixed incontinence. It does not involve any incisions, nor bleeding, or sutures, and you can return to your normal life right after treatment. Most patients report no pain, and absolutely minimal discomfort associated with the procedure.

Urinary incontinence is often caused by stretching and loss of elasticity, as well as injured connective tissue in the pelvic floor. This causes the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, creating an imbalanced relationship between the urethra and the bladder, which interferes with the function that closes the bladder when it is full. While you can strengthen the support of the bladder to some extent by exercising the muscles that supports it (kegel exercises), the connective tissues are equally important. As you can imagine, these tissues do not respond to exercise.
The Er:YAG laser technique is aimed at repairing and tightening the connective tissues supporting the bladder. The treatment is delivered through the vagina, where microsecond-long laser pulses create a controlled temperature increase within the vaginal tissue. The immediate effect of this heating, is that the collagen and vaginal mucosa tissues shrink, and the vaginal wall becomes tighter. Furthermore, this stimulation allows the body to naturally continue the regeneration and repair process after the treatment. Thus, the bulging of the vaginal wall is lessened, and the bladder receives increased support and can return to normal functioning.
Clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of this treatment; 70% of patients were dry after 120 days, 94% of patients reported improvements, and no adverse events were noted. Our patients report that there is almost no discomfort during the treatment. In fact, the sensation caused by the laser-pulse, is often described as similar to a feather touch.
